Master staller Fred meets his match (poetry!) in this hilarious not-yet-ready-for-bed tale...Schneider’s deadpan delivery, combined with his ability to populate a world of realistically rendered animals in fanciful settings or situations, is a comedic win...Ingenious
-Kirkus

Synopsis

Every kind of bird and beast has to sleep, from the monkeys in the jungle to the whales in the ocean to the ants under the ground.     But not Fred. His to-do list is far too long!      Armed with plenty of imagination, this determined little boy and his attempts to resist bedtime are sure to strike a chord with today's over scheduled families. Drowsy animals of all stripes look on in disbelief as Fred keeps on going and going and going, until . . .     Could it be that, after so much activity, even Fred needs to rest?     Shhh. Close the book softly, and please let Fred sleep.
